Abstract:

From our experience as well in teaching as in consultancy at the Royal Military Academy we learned that previously existing MCDM software did not fit well acquisition projects of military equipments. To solve this problem, we created a team to develop the MCDMTool which is an implementation of the combined use of two different types of outranking methods PROMETHEE and ORESTE. The choice of all technical parameters is assisted by interactive modules. The capabilities of this software are demonstrated here in the framework of acquisition of military equipment.
